  watchdogd doesn't start on boot

  Watchdog daemon starts on system boot.


  After updating from Utopic to Vivid the watchdog daemon doesn't start. A manual service watchdog start after boot up starts the daemon normally.
  There seems to be a problem with the transition of the init scripts from Upstart to SystemD.
